The Visionary-New Mexico True Stories

10,048 views 1 month ago
Sculptor Michael Naranjo never gets to see the beauty of his own work. Blind since a war injury in Vietnam, he sculpts purely from feel, and from memory. The wildlife and the Native American dancers of his childhood take shape in clay with the fluid motion of his hands, one of them also badly injured in the war. The artist's New Mexico True Story is inspiring, as he delights the eyes of others with his work.
